Michael B. Jordan Responds Perfectly To Tweet About Him Living With Parents
He may play an absolute badass on screen in the new Black Panther movie, but when the cameras aren't rolling Michael B. Jordan is just a regular 5'9" adult man, who lives with his parents and watches anime. Well, that's what one Twitter user reckoned anyway.
However, since the tweet - which claimed to reveal a few lesser-known facts about the Black Panther star - went viral, it has now caught the attention of the man himself, who was keen to dispel a few of the claims.
The original post read:

And while he couldn't deny all of the comments, Jordan did take issue with a few minor inaccuracies.
"First of All I'm 6ft and they live with ME," Jordan responded via Twitter, before addressing the comment about anime:

Still, some of Jordan's followers were less than impressed by his anime of choice.
"oh you're into that kinda of anime.... the mainstream ones," said one commenter - to which Jordan replied: "Nah that was a softball for the anime uneducated."
Critics are already going crazy for Black Panther, the latest offering from Marvel Studios, with some hailing it as to greatest Marvel movie of all time.
Speaking to Screenrant about playing a villain for the first time, Jordan said: "I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and try something different, especially with Ryan [Coogler, director], working with him again. I jumped at the chance to get a chance to work with him again.
"I think one of the challenges for us, if we do our jobs the right ways, is hopefully, Killmonger is somebody you guys can root for, too. I think that's something hard to accomplish, but if we all do what we're supposed to do, I think that will be a really hard decision to make, to figure out who you want to root for.
"I think that brings out the best in villains."
Black Panther, which stars Michael B. Jordan as villain Erik Killmonger, is out in cinemas nationwide now.
